Protocol Labs

Protocol Labs is an open-source research, development, and deployment laboratory. Our projects include IPFS, Filecoin, libp2p, and many more. We aim to make human existence orders of magnitude better through technology.

We are a fully distributed company. Our team of more than 100 members works remotely and in the open to improve the internet — humanity’s most important technology — as we explore new advances in computing and related fields.

Define and build elegant, performant, and resilient systems for tomorrow's web.   We are hiring Distributed Systems Engineers to work on the implementations of open source protocols like IPFS, Filecoin, Drand, and libp2p. Enthusiasm about the decentralized web and blockchains has brought an influx of people who want to use distributed systems but who don't know how to build the necessary infrastructure. We are building that infrastructure. To continue that work, we're looking for people who thoroughly understand the principles of distributed systems and cryptography, and who will lean into the challenges of applying those principles in writing open-source code that will be deployed worldwide.  Distributed Systems Engineering at Protocol Labs Distributed systems engineering lies at the center of many projects at Protocol Labs. With IPFS, libp2p, Filecoin, Drand, and other related projects we are laying the foundation for a more resilient, more secure, distributed version of...

Seeking an experienced cryptographer to help us research and develop state of the art cryptosystems to upgrade the internet. Research at Protocol Labs This isn't an ordinary Research Scientist position.  Your expertise is mostly driven by both a hunger to learn and a need to work toward solving important problems.  Our research scientists are granted both the freedom to develop their knowledge by working on novel applications, and a responsibility to contribute those skills toward advancing the flagship projects of Protocol Labs.  You’ll feel at home working with us if your knowledge and optimism enables you to name a few unusual possible approaches when you’re first presented with a problem that people often consider intractable.   We see cryptography often acting as the last line of defense in a world that’s rife with malicious actors.  We examine a broad spectrum of potential projects, like Filecoin, that rely on providing various cryptographic guarantees to users....
